The eight essays in this volume imaginatively explore the interrelationship between law and society in nineteenth-century America and encompass in their discussion some of the major historical issues of the era.

This collection contains a series of unusually good essays on U.S. constitutional and legal history in the nineteenth century. . . . There is much to savor in these essays, which offer depth of analysis, good legal and constitutional history, and superb writing.
